Most Britons reject Covid-19 “vaccine nationalism”, and say they would be willing to wait until health workers in other countries have had vaccines if that would help end the pandemic sooner, according to poll findings released on Monday.
Conducted in mid-August by polling firm Savanta ComRes for anti-poverty organisation The ONE Campaign, the survey found significant public support for Covid-19 vaccines being made available to all countries at the same time, regardless of how rich or powerful they are.
“British people clearly understand this global pandemic demands a global response. It simply won’t work for each country to go its own way,” said Romilly Greenhill, The ONE’s UK director.
“While this virus thrives anywhere, it threatens people everywhere.”
The World Health Organisation called last week for an end to “vaccine nationalism” and warned against “hoarding” as a growing number of countries agreed bilateral deals to buy millions of doses of Covid-19 vaccines.
